Fluttering Butterflies on my dress (Aari work)

These fluttering butterflies are done with AAri work.Doing it with AAri was not really difficult but searching for the right sized bead that fit into the needle was definitely a tough job! I am not sure if I was  using the wrong needle for this. Quite possibly I was using the smallest needle available here.

  The material on which I have done these butterflies already had butterfly designs on them. These are in random directions. In places where there are no butterflies there are butterfly prints. These are not visible in the photograph.

  When I gave this piece of work to stitch the tailor stitched it upside down and also goofed up with the design and some part of the work.It looks incomplete now:(. BTW for the borders I have used laced back stitch and colonial knot.
